The George Washington women’s soccer program added Alan Fread as a volunteer assistant coach under Head Coach Sarah Barnes for the 2016 season.
Coach Fread joined the Colonials after serving as an assistant coach for the Georgetown men’s soccer program. In charge of video production, Fread edited and analyzed game film to provide tactical feedback about upcoming opponents. He also assisted with daily training and technical player development throughout the season.
In 2015, the Hoyas had an impressive season with a record of 16-2-3 overall and 9-0-0 in BIG EAST play. The team set a program-record 18-game unbeaten streak including a 14-game win streak. Georgetown also took the BIG EAST Championship title, marking the first time in program history that the Hoyas won the league’s postseason tournament.
During Fread’s time at Georgetown, he coached two athletes who earned BIG EAST recognition, two All-Americans, and two players drafted 60th and 42nd in the Major League Soccer Draft.
Outside of coaching collegiality, Fread is currently a staff coach for the Potomac Soccer Association. He works to develop and execute comprehensive team-focused training sessions to improve both individual and team technical and tactical abilities for the top teams in the club.
